Don Brackin, Founder, Odds-N-Ends

At HomCo today, local owner Mike Brackin carries on his family’s tradition of expert knowledge, service and craftsmanship at HomCo Lumber & Hardware – Flagstaff’s hometown hardware store. Originally founded as “Odds-N-Ends” in 1975 by Mike’s father, the late Don Brackin, HomCo Lumber & Hardware is northern Arizona’s leading authority on the home improvement industry. From professional contractor sales to retail offerings and services, HomCo Lumber & Hardware has the solutions to all of your home building, remodeling and repair needs.

In 1990, we joined the Ace Hardware franchise, and ever since then we’ve been able to offer our customers the most comprehensive selection of tools found in any store throughout northern Arizona. From top-of-the-line power drills to specialty tools that are hard to come by, HomCo Lumber & Hardware will likely have the tools you’re looking for in stock, and if you can’t find it on the shelf, one of our expert staff members will gladly special order it for you. We’ve also grown our Professional Contractor Sales Department over the years to include 10 experts who help our professional contractor customers manage all aspects of a project from start to finish. In February of 2013, HomCo Ace Hardware became HomCo Lumber & Hardware. With this new name came other important steps forward for HomCo Lumber & Hardware, such as placing more focus on the evolving needs of our retail, construction and commercial/industrial customers.

Our commitment to delivering unparalleled customer service through both professional contractor sales and our retail division is one of the main reasons why we’re continually voted “Best of Flagstaff” by readers of the Arizona Daily Sun. Local experts, high-quality products, and friendly service – now that’s a legacy Mike Brackin is proud of.
